6th Rural Dermatology Meeting 2019


The 2019 Australasian College of Dermatologists Rural Dermatology Meeting will be held at the Orange Agricultural Institute in New South Wales from 6th to 8th September.

Orange is famous for its cold climate wines and close to the famous Parkes telescope (The Dish). Orange has much to offer for both you and your family. Where else can you search for truffles and fossick for gold?

The dinner venue will be Zona, a beautiful renovated heritage house in the centre of town.

For the cocktail party we will be at Racine, an authentic shed on a vineyard.


Highlights of the meeting include:

  • Keynote presentations
  • Case discussions
  • Addressing rural workforce issues
  • Experiences of rural and remote dermatologists and other medical specialists
